Ripley’s and Bruce Campbell at San Diego Comic-Con



In Celebration of its 100th Anniversary, Ripley’s to Host Interactive

‘Ripley’s Believe It or Not!’ Car Lot Activation All Weekend Long


ORLANDO, FL (July 1, 2019) – Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is coming to San Diego this July for Comic-Con! Marking their first-ever appearance at the event, Ripley’s will bring the iconic 100-year-old brand to life with a panel moderated by Bruce Campbell, host of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! reboot airing on Travel Channel Sundays at 9|8c. Campbell will also participate in an exclusive autograph signing, and Ripley’s is transforming Petco Park into a massive outdoor activation along with an indoor booth experience.


Inflatable tube men, human car washes, and a pinball arcade — the Car Lot has it all. Hawking some of the strangest vehicles money can buy — from the world’s smallest street legal car to a Landspeeder and Hummer made out of lottery tickets — lot owner LeRoy has a curious car for you. Step into LeRoy’s office, where you can snap a photo as a souvenir of searching for the strangest sedan or station wagon of your dreams. The Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Car Lot is going to be full of surprises!


Inside the convention center, eventgoers can head to booth #4015 and cruise into Ripley’s Garage to view props and peculiar pieces from the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! collection — from shrunken heads to the original Star Wars® lightsaber. There will also be unique retail items like a shrunken head air freshener, and giveaways and prizes to redeem at the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Car Lot at Petco Park.

Plus, the newest edition of the Ripley’s annual, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Beyond the Bizarre, will be available FIRST at San Diego Comic-Con before it officially hits stores — featuring a look behind the scenes with Bruce Campbell on set in the Ripley Warehouse. Pick up a copy before you head over to Bruce’s signing and get it autographed by the man himself!
